ODL Europe opens new in-house door prepping facility

ODL Europe has launched its in-house composite door prepping facility at its UK headquarters in Bootle, Merseyside. Nathan Barr, ODL Europe’s managing director, said: “Our new door prepping facility follows a six-figure investment made at our Bootle plant and allows us to further support our customers with a comprehensive door prepping service.”

The new in-house door prepping facility has been designed to support the company’s growing customer base. It includes prepping slabs for customers’ door locks, letter plates and door hinges with open in and open out options. The service ranges from simple sizing of the doors on the new beam saw to a full prepped door service with or without edge banding. Nathan said: “The new in-house facility allows a degree of flexibility and we can offer as much prepping as is needed. We opened the new facility in early April and we’re already seeing an upturn in prepped orders from our customers with a quick, efficient turnaround being achieved.”

ODL recently announced that it is operating a 24/7 shift pattern from May 2019 to support its continued double-digit year on year sales growth and reported a 30% sales growth last year across the business.
